My research interrogates questions of development in the context of globalization, transnational trading networks and labour. More specifically, I have researched public and private governance of labour incorporated into South African fruit global production networks. I focus on the role of national laws and regulations in governing labour, and how they interact with lead-firm driven private codes of conduct and civil society initiatives across geographical scales. I earned my PhD in International Development from the Global Development Institute (GDI), and am currently employed as Lecturer in International Business and Management at AMBS.
